Sconnie Sports Talk’s Nick Osen joins B5Q this week’s show for a look at the men’s basketball team as Greg Gard’s squad heads into another busy week on the court. Here’s the breakdown:

[0:00-21:53] Wisconsin’s three-game winning streak: The reasons behind it; Ethan Happ’s triple-double, and do we take him for granted? Plus, we look at the contributions from those not named Happ.

[21:54-28:21] True freshman Tai Strickland has played sparingly this year but he talks with B5Q about his development this year alone, the ability to hit shots with the shot clock winding down, and some of the “WOW” plays he’s made in practice (with special guest appearance by Brad Davison).

[28:21-End of Show]: Nick and Jake preview key match-ups against Nebraska on Tuesday night (7 p.m. CT, BTN) and Maryland on Friday night (8 p.m. CT, FS1). We also ask the question—what is the ceiling for this Wisconsin squad?
